Sharpening your hand tools



This workshop reveals the art of sharpening your hand tools, focussing on spoon carving tools including knives, crook knives and carving axes.

You will learn to sharpen tools that we provide, or you can bring along your own tools that need sharpening.

Stephen, your tutor, has been carving for over 30 years and has a wealth of experience and knowledge in this field. You will be supported throughout and he will be on hand with advice on the best kind of tools to buy. There will also be the opportunity to buy some on the night.

Note: In the event that the minimum number of four participants is not reached, the workshop will be postponed with 48 hours' notice.

Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All materials and tools necessary for learning the art of sharpening hand tools will be provided.
Bring your own tools if you have them.
